In this study, Melamine functionalized graphene oxide (FGO-Melamine) was synthesized by chemical route. The prepared functionalized graphene oxide was characterized by different analytical techniques such as FT-IR, Raman spectroscopy, thermogravimetry coupled with mass spectrometry (TG-MS), X-Ray diffraction (XRD), field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). To improve electrochemical properties of polyorthoaminophenol (POAP), the electropolymerized POAP/FGO-Melamine films, employed as an active electrode regarding electrochemical performance. In terms of electrochemical measurements, galvanostatic charge-discharge evaluation, EIS (electrochemical impedance spectroscopy) and CV (cyclic voltammetry) were employed for conducing an enquiry into supercapacitive performance of nanocomposite of POAP/FGO-Melamine. This graphene-based electrode showed a specific capacitance (SC) by 273 F g(-1) and high energy of 37.91 W kg(-1) at power density of 500 W kg(-1). The novel materials synthesized in the current work show higher efficiency compared to the carbon-based ones concerning redox reactions of capacitors consisting of good stability in the existence of aqueous electrolyte, large active surface area and ease synthesis method.
